Elephants Dream

Published 2006

From the official website:

"Elephants Dream is the story of two strange characters exploring a capricious and seemingly infinite machine. The elder, Proog, acts as a tour-guide and protector, happily showing off the sights and dangers of the machine to his initially curious but increasingly skeptical protege Emo. As their journey unfolds we discover signs that the machine is not all Proog thinks it is, and his guiding takes on a more desperate aspect.

Elephants Dream is the world’s first open movie, made entirely with open source graphics software such as Blender, and with all production files freely available to use..."

Included in the files are:
  • 1080p and 360p sets of every frame of the movie in PNG format for re-compression or study

  • Multiple FLAC encoded audio tracks (5.1 audio and a stereo 16-bit FLAC file)

  • high-resolution and high definition encodings of the movie

This is a "Blender" movie. Made with the Blender Animation program. There are others too, Big Buck Bunny and Sintel are both better imho. I don't know if anyone's uploaded them here yet as they are all widely available online.Blender is a free program so in theory anyone could have made this movie, and the others I mentioned too. The animation in this particular film is very very good as is the writing/plot. Very watchable but I HIGHLY recommend "Sintel" and "Big Buck Bunny". Oh.... Blender is a free program if you think you would like to try your hand at this kind of thing, with many tutorials on youtube.
